Get Out and Vote for Column A - Dierkes, Fortunato, Bonilla, on Tuesday Nov. 3rd

UNION COUNTY, NJ - Enough is enough already.  For the last two decades, Union County has experienced one party government and only one way of thinking (tax and spend and worry about it later) which has made Union County, New Jersey the 7th highest taxed county in the Nation!  Yes, you read that correctly, the 7th highest taxed county in the Nation!  Our seniors are leaving in droves, our young families can't afford to buy new homes and nobody wants to do business in Union County anymore.  

This upcoming election might not have the glamor or excitement of a Presidential election but the results certainly will have a profound effect on your everyday life and your future.  On Nov. 3rd you have a simple choice: you can stay home and allow the Democrats to continue raising taxes year after year OR you can send a clear message to restore accountability, fiscal responsibility and good governance to the Board of Chosen Freeholders.  

It’s not too late to right the ship but we can’t do it alone.  We need each and every one of you here in Union County at the ballot box on November 3rd exercising your right to vote. Enough is enough already, it's time to take back our local government.

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 22, 2018

After Bruce Patrson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting freeholder I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered. A the the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.
